Hope’s Fall Health Fair returns Saturday

This year's theme for the annual event is Sing for Your Health

The 13th annual Fall Health Fair takes over Hope Secondary School this Saturday.

The event aims to raise awareness about healthy and active living by bringing together  local and regional health, social and cultural resources. This year’s theme is Sing for Your Health.

“The idea is just to showcase different modes of activity that can positively benefit your health,” said co-organizer Brenna Ayliffe. “There will be similar participants to last year and many tables will be having draw prizes.”

The Fall Health Fair will feature a concession sponsored by Camp Squeah, children’s crafts, storytelling, flu shot clinic, and entertainment by Hope Performing Arts Community Theatre and Hope Community Choir. Hope’s Heart Hero award will also be presented, which recognizes an individual or group who has made a significant contribution in the community through volunteering, work or other means.

Care Transit is providing complimentary shuttle service to the event on Nov. 3. Pick-up locations are: Riverside Manor 10 a.m., Lakeway Market 10:30 a.m., Park Street Manor 11 a.m., Cariboo Trailer Park 11:30 a.m., and Silver Creek Flood Hope Husky 12 p.m. Anyone who is unable to make these locations is asked to contact Care Transit at 604-869-3396 by noon on Nov. 2 to make other arrangements.
